Support Resources

There are a number of support resources you can access on this site, developed by Safe and Equal and in some cases in partnership with organisations across the family violence sector.

These resources aim to provide you with relevant and up to date information on family violence, and what you can do to get the support you need.

Easy English

Information from this website is also available in an Easy English downloadable booklet called ‘How to feel safe at home if there is family violence’.


Do you need support now?

If you or someone you know is in immediate danger, call triple zero (000).

If you are experiencing family violence, there are services that can provide support and advice. They will listen to you and help you to explore your options and think about what you want to do next.


In partnership with Family Violence Victoria (FSV) we have developed a series of four animated videos, designed to raise awareness of family violence and give viewers the skills and confidence to respond.

Each video focuses on a different topic, including what it is like to experience family violence, recognising the signs of family violence, and how to ask a loved one if they are safe at home.

Each video has been translated into 15 languages with closed captioning.

“Recognising the signs of family violence” (English)

This project has been funded by The State Government of Victoria, Edward Wilson Estate, Erdi Foundation, The Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation, the William Buckland Foundation and Trusts managed as part of the Sector Capacity Building Fund at Equity Trustees.
